The Hemispheric Institute and the Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage of the Smithsonian Institution present:

Indigenous Cinema ’22—Images to Postpone the End of the World

Hemispheric Institute, November 11 – December 12, 2022

Curated by Amalia Córdova

Following Ailton Krenak's invitation to consider the interdependence between all living beings, we look at what nourishes and sustains us: from the primary bond to land and water, to acts of healing and ceremony. Beyond denunciation, these films delve into Indigenous conceptions of territoriality and spirituality, with images and sounds that channel vitality, connection and relationality in the face of the multiple threats to our collective wellbeing. Can we retrace the pathways, listen to the seeds, to the rivers, and the poets? Can we petition the spirits and sing in our own languages?
